The Smell of Cap Guns by Gustavius Payne

Gustavius Payne is a Welsh figurative artist, born and living in Merthyr Tydfil. This exhibition marks his 50th year.

His diverse imagery draws from mythology and folk-lore, alongside ecological and political concerns, drawing the viewer into a fascinating reflective world, set in the post-industrial Welsh Valleys.

The exhibition’s title draws reference to the memories of a child’s youthful innocence, coloured with a particular set of cultural values.

ON EMPTINESS | Oliver Perkins & Patrick Lundberg

Nothingness is in reality a mirage, in a tripartite sense that it assumes the horizon of perception, represents a reverse image of the real, and is the expression of a desire at the heart of a reality that does not lend itself to it. It vanishes therefore when consciousness seeks to approach and thematise it. 1

The disappearance of the object does not only exclude but also reveals the presence of the world as the background against which all objects appear. 2

Theresa Taylor and Nigel Morris: Spatiality

An insight into the working practices of two printmakers who have previously shown together and have an ongoing artistic relationship. Theresa and Nigel’s continued interest in print developed together through exhibiting and art appreciation.

This combined exhibition sees the artists explore and examine spatiality from their own unique viewpoints and practices. Alongside individual work, collaborative pieces will be presented as part of this show in the form of several blended prints.

Derek Boshier: It's only when the tide goes out… Selected works and ephemera, 1976 - 2018

An exhibition of drawings, paintings, prints and videos, along with lesser-known photographic and sculptural works and ephemera from the personal collection of English pop artist Derek Boshier who first came to prominence as part of the British Pop Art movement in the early 1960s.

Containing works from the last four decades of the artist's career, presented here is a never before seen portrait of an artist whose own work he has described as "art that's political, not political art".
